    Text Messages to Speech

    To hear your text messages converted to speech:

    1. Tap the Voice Recognition key, or Start > Voice Recognition
    2. Say "Check Messages"

    The Q9n will read your messages aloud and ask if you want to reply.

    "You have one new message" "Message from Alana" "Would you like to hear message" [Yes]
    "Dad I will be home in a few minutes"
    "Would you like to reply?"

    The RAZR2 was supposed to do that about two years ago. Not a bad feature.

    did not know that...thanks

    do you have to activate the voice recognition every time you get a text (that could be annoying)

    now that is cool. Does it sound good or like that app for the Qs.

    Sounds very good. It is ashame the reply function wasn't finished. I'll ask the developer who is working on the other stuff for us.

    yes, speech to text would be a huge selling point, if they decide to sell it.

    Absolutely! I've been trying to figure out a way to do that for years. I'm sure it would be difficult for the phone, as it's vocabulary would have to be expanded exponentially. Sure would be nice though. and safer than the alternative...

    Nope, doesn't even acknowledge it's there...

    does a nice job of reading the SMS though

    Somebody FIX THAT. The phone has NUANCE Voice Recognition Software.
    I paid $180 for NUANCE software for my PC and it will do it all.

    Yeah, it's kind of strange. Doesn't work as well as the Voice Signal that was on my V710, E815, and Moto Q.

    I can't get it to understand when I say Check Status, it gives me time and date instead of the full status. I'm saying names repeatedly and it doesn't understand them, or gets way off, when my last 3 phones did much better.

    I hear this one learns your voice, so maybe it will get better. Lie I said, the 2004 software on my V710 did a better job right out of the box.

    This one does seem to have better context sensative help, and tells you to say it different the next time. Seems like they concentrated on that more than the actual voice recognition....

    You can teach it your voice setting/adaptation

    I thought about that, but i never had to do that on the other ones. The manual said to the other phones said to avoid that unless you had a strong accent or something.

    I don't have much of an accent at all, I've lived so many different places, just kind of neutral.
